    These taste so much like Taco Bell's "Meximelts" - who knew I could make them at home in a healthy version! Next time I plan on adding a little cilantro.

    We don't only use mozzarella but also other cheeses.

    We do a similar pizza, only we make the tortillas crisp in the oven first, then put on toppings of sauted onion and green pepper, mushroom, sliced avacado, grated cheese, and place in the oven. We melt the cheese and remove from the oven. Top with fresh tomatoes or salsa.Very delicious!

    My variation is.... I brush the flour tortillas with melted garlic butter and top with cooked chicken, tomato, onion, green pepper & mozzarella. Yum!
